Save Money by Saving Energy
Texas summers turn the heat up both inside and outside the house. Temperatures regularly exceed the triple digit mark, causing strain not just on you, but also on your wallet. With rising temperatures come falling thermostats, which create emptier pocketbooks.
Solar air conditioning is a way to combat both the high temperatures and high energy bills. By using the sun to help with your air conditioner, your AC unit will never have worked better. It will help out by reducing the cost of cooling your home significantly, yet still keep your home cool.
Help Out Your Air Conditioner By Adding Solar
The solar process works by changing where the refrigerant travels. In a completely normal air conditioning unit, the coolant travels from the evaporator coil on the inside of your house. It then goes to the compressor on the outside, where the compressor heats it up. The heated coolant expends any excess energy out into the heat, which is why your exterior air conditioner is so hot. The basic goal is to get the coolant heated up so heat can be removed from the inside of your house better.
A solar air conditioner works similarly, but different. The refrigerant still leaves the evaporator from inside your house. However, in a solar unit, your coolant takes a detour to solar panels. There, the solar unit utilizes the power of the sun to heat up the coolant before it even gets to the compressor.
Instead of your outside AC doing all the work, the solar panels help out.
By the time the coolant gets to the compressor, it has already been heated considerably. In order to maximize the energy output from the refrigerant, much less work now has to be done. This saves the amount of energy that goes into the compressor, which saves you money.
Solar Air Conditioners are a worthwhile investment
